Brings back original daylight color and fog settings from pre-After Dark versions of C:S

IT'S A MOD, NOT A LUT! This mod doesn't require After Dark DLC!

Are you annoyed with that yellow tint that turns days into permanent evenings? Are you annoyed with your favorite LUTs not working after upgrade to C:S 1.2 (a.k.a After Dark)? Are you annoyed with over-saturation? Are you annoyed with bluish fog? Then this mod is for you.

It attempts to recreate original light conditions from better days. As side effect, this mod makes night slightly brighter.
If you're annoyed with new fog/clouds effect, you can use my Clouds & Fog Toggler mod. I highly recommend you to disable fog if you use play with Day/Night cycle enabled becuase fog effect that was introduced in After Darks has bluish tint.

What this mod does (with all options enabled - these features can be disabled individually):
- Changes sunlight intensity to pre-AD value. If you're a Time Warp user, you can adjust sun light intensity using that mod's options.
- Cahnges sunlight tint from yellowish to clear white.
- Replaces stock LUTs with LUTs from pre-AD
- Replaces fog & lighting effect with effect from pre-AD (much more beautiful and no bluish tint!) Also allows to customize skybox at daytime.
- Restores classic sun positions. If you're a Time Warp user, you can adjust Longitude/Latitude to your liking.
- Removes greenish tint from fog if AD fog effect is enabled (makes surises/sunsets less dramatic though).
- Provides options entry to enable/disable the above features

First 2 screenshots were made without LUT enabled in Boreal biome. On screenshot 5 you can see how this mod fixes Photoreal3 LUT. Screenshots 3 and 4 demonstrate the difference in Snowfall DLC's Winter environment.

@Benjin Yeah it's a problem with Afterdark and this mod. They're not compatible. However my rain doesn't work without this.

Thanks for the mod, mate! The sun is nowhere to be seen, though.

Yeah, I've also got the eternal daytime sky problem too. I disabled all of my other mods and it was still happening with this enabled.

I have the eternal daytime sky problem as well. Also, the Classic Fog Effect toggle doesn't do anything until I completely reboot the game. It no longer toggles inside the game. I suspect the two might be related, because as soon as I turn off Classic Fog and reboot, the night sky works as normal. (But Cubemap replacer obviously doesn't. To use it I then have to turn the option back on and reboot the entire game again.)

It definitely seems to be related to the Classic Fog Effect. Turning it on breaks the night sky, but I can't turn it off without a reboot.

Thanks BP, I'm still having this issue, and I've since uninstalled Cities and installed only DC and still have the problem. It's sad that I find the game unplayable without your mod. You'd think CO would have fixed the yellow by now...

@|TG-Irr| Aufklarer @mrglide Hmm, will take a look at that when I have time

I have used it for a long time. But recently I just found that I could not see the sun in the game. Can I stop using the graphics of the sky ? I really want to see the sun in my city. Thank you.

Hi! Would it be possible to implement some kind of sun color adjustments, so we could set it somewhere between the yellow vanilla game tint and clear white? I find the 255,255,255 values too bright and would love to set them individually.
Thank you for your hard work!

i'm using Ultimate Eyecandy to control the sun position, if that helps any

Perhaps if you're willing Penguin and unable to reproduce the error, could you send me a copy of the previous version of the mod via a drop link or e-mail or something if you have one, so that I can see if it's something that the last update brought about? That would isolate it at least. I've been installing mods since the dawn of time, so I'm assuming I could find the right file locations if you sent me the individual files. Up to you, of course.
